Public Counsels Office

The Public Counsels Office serves as a resource for all students at Texas State University to use before the court. The Public Counsels Office is similar to a Public Defenders Office. The Chief Justice appoints the Public Counselors without the consent of the Senate. If you need help filing documents or would like a representative to argue before the Supreme Court, the Election Board or any lower court established by the Senate on your behalf, please contact:
